“Police said a preliminary investigation suggested that the 2-year-old was handling a rifle when it went off, striking the child’s father.”
Doesn’t seem possible. Makes you wonder if there was someone else was in the home.

Strangely there are people that leave their firearms cocked and ready to fire at all times. All it takes to fire is a bump or fall.

Not to mention leaving it where a toddler could get it and play with it.

Proud Boys have petitioned to adopt the child as their new spokesman for Second Amendment rights. (Also, Marjorie Taylor Greene says the toddler was merely defending his Tinker Toys from a possible assailant.)

Another responsible firearm owner learns a sad lesson.
Poor child will eventually find out what he did and will have to live with it.

Laws now don’t work. Confiscate???? from whom???? only the law abiding citizens follow the laws now regarding registration, etc. So you think THEY are supposed to give up their guns and become sitting ducks for the criminals who don’t. No thanks. The madness is letting the career criminals ruin our cites and not doing anything about THAT. Catch and release. Catch and release. THAT madness must stop.

Catch and Release refers to Fish, not Humans.
Hundreds of cases are prosecuted every day.
Why do you say anyone in this story is a criminal?

Move to China and see what else is REGULTED and LEGISLATED after guns are CONFISCATED. They have classes in grade school now called “XI Jinping thought” . If your child doesn’t take those classes they will be sent to an internment camp to be “re-educated” on what it is to be a Chinese person. I will take my luck with just practicing gun safety and teaching my kids gun safety. No need for the government to be involved. If you dont want a gun then dont get one, If you dont want your kids around guns then keep them away from guns. But dont tell me or anyone else how we have to live without guns because you dont like them. Right now firearms are highly regulated and it seems like the bad guys are the ones not following the regulations. Be mad at them , not the other 99% of the population that follows the laws.

The only madness is your statement. Irresponsibility comes in all forms, this just happens to be one of those cases. You may choose to or choose not to own a firearm, its your right, but don’t infringe upon my right to choose to do so.

You believe that getting rid of firearms will stop murder? The “knockout game” played on S. Grand has killed at least one person. The strong would prey on the weak worse than they do now. Plus. Legislate? Like making murder a crime?

A 2yo would not be able to kill his Father in a “KnockOut Game” would he?

You can’t make this stuff up, because if you did, it would be unbelievable.
